Patient Reviews

"Dr. Solmen performed surgery on two toes on my right foot. Very pleased with his demeanor, professionalism and expertise. Just visited him and I need additional surgery on another toe. I have no reservations on having him perform the operation. Recommend him highly!"

"This was my first surgery experience with Dr. Solmen. He explained what and how he was going to do my surgery in plain English. He made me feel very comfortable .The nurses and anesthesiologists at the Orthopedic Surgery Center were friendly and efficient also."

"I felt Dr. Solmen took great caution and care to figure out what the best course of action was for my needs. I needed surgery. I felt confident and comfortable speaking to him. I had my surgery and am healing well. I was contacted several times to make sure I was doing properly at home before my next visit. I would highly recommend."
